Now that Silverlight 1.0 is out the door, my team is
cranking hard on our Silverlight 1.1 release.
Silverlight 1.1 will include a cross-platform version of the
.NET Framework, and will enable a rich .NET development experience in the
browser. It will support a WPF programming model for UI - including support for an extensible control model, layout management, data-binding, control skinning,
and a rich set of built-in controls. It will also include a subset of the
full .NET Framework base class library you use today, including support for collections, generics, IO, threading, globalization, networking (including sockets,
web-services and REST support), HTML DOM, XML, local storage, and LINQ.
You'll be able to use any .NET language to develop a
more). It is going to really open up a lot of new development
